Last week General Hospital brought back one of the fan’s most favorite characters, Damien Spinelli and his counterpart Ellie Trout (Emily Wilson). Good friend Carly really needed Spinelli’s help to solve the mystery that involved Ava, AJ, and Sonny. Spinelli’s tech support never falls short when his friends are in need.
Spinelli and Ellie left Port Charles to move to Portland Oregon to chase Ellie’s dream job, running her own lab. However, they didn’t move to Portland alone. Since Spinelli was granted custody of baby Georgie, his and Maxie’s baby girl, the three of them said goodbye to their loved ones in Port Charles and started a new life. The court had ordered that Maxie be reevaluated in 6 months, with the potential of getting custody of her daughter. Now that those 6 months are up, we may be seeing a lot more of Spinelli.
With the Maxie/Georgie custody story line in the works, Spinelli may just have to be front and center for again for a while. Not only does the story seem to be leading towards a Spinelli return, but the actor himself has divulged his thoughts on the idea. Ina recent interview for Soaps in Depth, actor Bradford Anderson made it clear that we would want nothing more than for his character of 8 years Damien Spinelli, to return to the GH canvas. Bradford Anderson told Soaps in Depth about the arrangement that he has with the show, “I think [what just aired] was to establish Spinelli and Ellie in the reality of living in Portland and keeping us on the canvas [in some way]. I think that’s nice! When I left, they very clearly said there was an open door. So by establishing us where we are and having people still use Spinelli for things, that means they can call me any time.”
Fans have been giving positive feedback ever since Spinelli and Ellie were brought back to the screen last week. If you would like to see Bradford Anderson/Damien Spinelli return to General Hospital full time, please let us know by commenting below and sharing this post.
